Rebels Saga Legends - Mission Series: MS17 Stormtrooper and TIE Pilot

The 2015 Rebels Rebels Saga Legends - Mission Series: MS17 Stormtrooper and TIE Pilot set contains 2 repacked figures that we just seen released on single cards. I am personally not a fan of repacked figures, but this set is great, especially for army builders. Both figures have 5 points of articulation and includes Blaster Rifles.

Just got a response back from Hunter PR (Hasbro) about the rumors / statements regarding the Rebels Saga Legends figure case assortments being cancelled or discontinued.

Question: There are some E-tailers that have stated that Hasbro has cancelled their orders for Rebels Saga Legends 3.75" case assortments and has been told they are now discontinued. Can you confirm that the Rebels Saga Legends figures and vehicles have been canceled or discontinued?

Answer: "We just spoke with the Star Wars

Rebels Saga Legends: SL26 Commander Bly

The 2015 Rebels Saga Legends SL26 Commander Bly figure has been added to our HD Photo Gallery today. The figure sculpt looks decent but my sample suffers from a sloppy paint application. He has the typical 5 points of articulation with the addition of movable Macro-binoculars on his helmet. He includes 2 pistols which can be holstered on his hips.

Enjoy the new HD Pics!

Saga Legends Rebels Figure Assortments Sold Out, Cancelled, or Discontinued?

Rumors floating around the Net that some Etailers have stated that Hasbro is no longer filling orders on the current Rebels Saga Legends figure waves.

If this is the case this does not mean the figures themselves have been discontinued. They will more then likely show up in future assortments.

Before jumping to conclusions, we are waiting to hear directly from Hasbro via Hunter PR.

Per StarWars.com:

"John Williams is currently hard at work composing the score for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which will be recorded in Los Angeles. For the recording of the score, Williams will work with members of the superb freelance orchestra with which he’s recorded numerous film scores over the years. The music will be recorded over several months while working in tandem with the film’s editorial and special effects teams on the West Coast".

Just added the 2015 Rebels Saga Legends SL25 Luke Skywalker (Endor) figure to our HD Photo Gallery. The sculpt looks great and unlike the Princess Leia (Endor) figure, Luke's Head and Helmet looks to be 2 pieces (helmet not removable) and has much more detail then Leia. Not sure why Hasbro did not do the same 2 piece head and helmet design for Leia as it looks so much better. Luke includes his trusty Lightsaber.

Enjoy the new HD Pictures!
